In 2009 she moved to Los Angeles. From 2009 to 2011 she studied dance in Los Angeles taking classes from various instructors at Millennium and Debbie Reynolds studio. While in California she attended Santa Monica College and UEI to pursue studies in the medical field. In 2011 she moved back to Naperville and rejoined the Xtreme Staff as a Co-Director for Crew Hip Hop and an Instructor at the Center. Nichole received her Nursing Degree and Certification in 2016. Being a nurse and teaching dance are both long time dreams of hers. Working with the crew kids and teaching the Children's program classes have given her a new insight on the dance world because she has the opportunity to enlighten the young kids she teaches and spark their interest in dance.

Kelsey competed with S&R Dance Company in Freeport, IL under the direction of Mary Berryhill and Nikki Spinden-Meagher where she gained the majority of her technical jazz and lyrical training until the age of 16.

From there Kelsey moved on to further her pre–professional dance training at Xtreme Dance Force, under the direction of Samuel Renzetti.
